I’ve enjoyed getting to know the team, identifying their strengths and using them to everyone’s advantage. 

I particularly enjoy afternoon tea time, when I can spend time with the residents, sharing stories and memories over a cup of tea and, of course, freshly baked goodies!

What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Lauder Lodge care home.

The staff know the residents well and know things that my mum likes. They try to accommodate her and are friendly and caring.

Relative of a resident, August 2023

They welcome you from the minute you turn up at the front door to when you leave. I was leaving yesterday and someone said see you next week. You are not just a number but a person.

Relative of a resident, August 2023

It is very apparent they know each resident, their strong points and their needs. 

Relative of a resident, August 2023

The care is exceptional, everything is great. My family are all pleased with the home, staff are very friendly, they know everything about my mum. The food is great and the variety of food is good.

Relative of a resident, April 2023

It's all we needed for my mum, she's got a lovely room and quite a lot of people to mix in with and things to do as well to keep her occupied and the staff are very nice.
